Achieving the body of your dreams on your own can seem nearly impossible. Even hours of crunches, lunges, and jogs alongside a balanced diet and regular sleep schedule sometimes just don’t cut it. Especially if you’ve experienced a significant weight fluctuation, that last critical bit of tightening and toning can be out of reach using traditional diet and exercise approaches.
Body Contouring offers a safe, efficient, and subtle means of slimming and tightening your body in all the right places. Dr. Yegiyants has a range of tools available that can sculpt and refine your figure with results that can last a lifetime. She is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon with an established record of stunning results.
Millions of people every year are hopping on the body contouring train, from celebrities to CEOs, to stay-at-home moms, dads, and everyone in-between. Read on to learn about these powerful new technologies, and if you have any questions, please give our Santa Barbara, CA office a call at 805-682-1731 today.
CoolSculpting® rose to popularity after being a well-kept red-carpet secret and has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available. Harnessing the power of Cryolipolysis, CoolSculpting® uses a state-of-the-art applicator to freeze away fat cells without harming any of the surrounding skin, muscle, or tissues.
In most cases, CoolSculpting® leads to around a 20% reduction in overall fat volume in the treatment area. Once these fat cells are gone, they’re gone for good. Afterwards, all you have to do is upkeep your results by maintaining a relatively stable body weight.
How does it work? Once fat cells are frozen and “killed,” the body naturally and gradually flushes them away over the next two to three months. Patients should expect to see a noticeable reduction in overall fat volume at about the two-week mark, with results continuing to improve for the next few months.
Treatment sessions last for about 30 minutes and require absolutely no downtime.
Warm Sculpting (SculpSure®)
WarmSculpting™, on the other hand, provides very similar results to CoolSculpting®, but with a totally different method. This treatment, rather than freezing away fat, utilizes the power of laser lipolysis.
Completely non-invasive, WarmSculpting™ uses a high-tech laser applicator to heat and destroy your fat cells without any risk of damaging or hurting the surrounding area. Some patients will feel a slight tingling warm sensation, and there may be some sensitivity immediately following treatment.
That said, you’ll be free to head right back to your normal daily routine after a treatment session. Over the next few months, your body will process the dead fat cells for a significant reduction in fat volume and an overall tighter, toned figure. Warm Sculpting can be performed on its own, or in combination with other treatments for holistic results.
Coolsculpting Vs SculpSure®
If you’re wondering which body contouring option is right for you, you’re not alone. Both of these state-of-art technologies have unique benefits that fit some patients more than others. Whichever you pick, you’ll see a visible reduction in overall fat volume in the treatment area.
One of the key differences is possible treatment size. The SculpSure® applicator is flat and allows for up to four treatment areas per session. CoolSculpting®’s applicator, on the other hand, is curved and comes in a variety of sizes and shapes to fit various parts of the body, but only one area can be treated per session. Depending on your goals, Dr. Yegiyants will help determine which procedure suits you best during your consultation.

Body Contouring is as much of an art as it is a science and requires an expert hand to craft natural-looking results you’ll love. Dr. Sara Yegiyants is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon with the experience and skill to expertly contour your body using an array of treatments and procedures.
With an early academic career in art prior to her study of plastic surgery, she offers each of her patients a superior eye for what looks aesthetically pleasing and knows how to help you achieve your goals.
